I Tried A Vegan Keto Diet For A Week

this meat smells weird today is a dark day I just want real food today I have to go vegan so last week I lost a bet to my friend Carrie is one of the best vegan news we’ve ever had it is I lost and I will be vegan for a week and I survive and I will survive Carrie actually sent me a message I just realized that you have to eat vegan for a week enjoy eating your veggies okay here’s the deal I fully support veganism I’ve heard all the facts about being a vegan I just it’s not for me I just started doing keto I’m all down for eating a plant-based diet but when I’m doing keto carbs on a part of it so I can’t eat beans I can’t eat quinoa I don’t know how I’m gonna get protein in this diet I don’t want to have to give up eggs and salmon and bacon I refuse to eat tofu I really really don’t want to eat tofu now I have to figure out what I’m gonna go eat today for the next seven days I’m gonna go online and do as much research as possible to try to find out how to do this I did not plan this out too well today day one I was not able to eat anything in our free lunch that we got I had to suck it up and basically just have some almond butter and some avocado also went and bought some MCT oil that I’m gonna put in some coffee to try to fill me up but I need to go to the store tonight to make sure I can get some protein at the end of the first day I was planning on going to the store but I had to work really late and I didn’t get a chance to go to the store so I’m not vegetarian or vegan but I am doing this thing where I have to eat vegan keto right now can I just do the Beyond eyes well the patty like the beyond burger patty this is all brand new to me so I’m pretty lucky I live in a city like la it makes doing this vegan thing so much easier I don’t know if I’d be able to do something like this in another part of the country so being a vegan is definitely kind of a privilege one of the things I realized early on with this diet is you really have to plan ahead alright so I just finished my morning workout and normally this is the time when I’m gonna go and try to have some breakfast probably eat some eggs some avocado something like that some of the fits in the keto diet I can’t have eggs I need to go to the store let some vegan protein powder I’m gonna have to prep every single meal and cook ahead of time especially since I’m not trying to eat tofu no tofu all right so we got some just beyond chicken I’m a big texture guy when it comes to food so this is throwing me off I don’t know jury’s still out either way I’m gonna eat it because any protein and this is all I got so I hope you’re enjoying this Kari I didn’t have time this morning to make myself something and I forgot to make a protein shake to bring with me so I was really really hungry just had a little bit of almond butter forgot to bring a hot picado so this is the thing where I really really have to try hard to make sure that I’m doing it the right way so I love Thai food I’m meeting a friend here at a vegan Thai place see how this goes I’m gonna try some of this soy chicken I’m not very excited I just want real meat you know what I mean this is pretty good I’m having a big craving for cheeseburgers I’m gonna try to make myself a vegan bacon cheeseburger I am not very confident this bacon doesn’t look well it doesn’t look like bacon okay if you can bake and here we go it kind of reminds me a turkey bacon it’s not bad it’s definitely not bacon but it can kind of satisfy that craving one gram of fat two grams of protein since I’m doing keto I would like there to be more fat in the bacon which real bacon actually has so kind of missing out on that which means I have to substitute something else to get extra fat see and keto is so much easier where you can actually eat real meat real eggs and things like that this actually tastes pretty damn good I’m not gonna lie but the only issue I have with it is that it has four grams of carbs and zero protein if I’m eating real cheese I’m gonna be getting more fat less carbs and more protein overall this is good so the funny thing about vegans is that as soon as they hear that you’re gonna try being vegan every one of them is really really helpful and wants to try to help you so what are we making we talked about tofu I don’t like it’s high protein tofu which are those your kids a lot of grams of protein 2 grams of carbs let’s do this [Applause] [Music] y’all heard me at the beginning I said no tofu I said none so I’ve already broken my rule but here we go this is so good do I think it would be better with regular protein maybe but right now I can’t even tell the difference honestly this tofu is really good the texture is good this is fantastic this is fantastic mmm this is good that’s all I have to say we’re done I’m definitely getting the hang of this whole vegan keto thing brought the curry to work to eat so once she’s done [Music] I last day of being a vegan I’m not gonna lie it feels good but you know what to be honest I haven’t actually been missing food too much I’ve been going through a jar every other day in this almond butter now I’m literally eating my own words as I said I would not eat so food this is the second dish I’ve had with tofu in two days this is a tofu scramble it’s pretty good all right so foo I like it I may have overreacted with my initial hatred for tofu that vegan curry was one of the best things I’ve ever had I still crave it and the thing I really liked about having to do this was it it took me out of my comfort zone and it taught me how to cook new things and try things I had not tried before moving forward I doubt that I will ever go fully vegan but I can’t see myself hearing more towards a plant-based diet in the future I was a man of my word I followed through with the bed I ate vegan keto for a week it was cool I feel better I learned some things but I’m not losing the next one [Music]
